FastStone Image Viewer

If you want your images to look the best they can--but you don't have a professional photographer's budget--check out FastStone Image Viewer. This FREE program lets you browse and view your images in a Windows-Explorer-like interface. FastStone image viewer supports all major image formats, including BMP, GIF, ICO, JPEG, JPEG2000, PCX, PNG, PSD, TAF, TIF and WMF. It includes EXIF metadata support as well (whatever that is). You can crop, resize, flip, rotate and adjust colors on your images and compare them side-by-side.

You can also convert your images from one format to another; in fact, you can even convert or resize your photos in batches. If you need to take a closer look without resizing, use the Full Screen image viewer to zoom in and size things up with the clear magnifier. Once you're done you can apply over 150 transitional effects in a slideshow.

While FastStone is free for personal and educational use, commercial users MUST register the software. Get it here:

After using this program for a few days I find that it is going to replace the program I normally use and that was ASeeDC. FastStone is free on top of all the great things it will do. This is a must have image viewer for the geek or novice. Go get it !
